Designing for Reliability

From day one, each new asset must be fit into your organization’s overall strategy in order to maximize your return on investment. The perfect blend of maximum performance and minimal oversight is determined through the development and execution of the asset’s reliability strategies.

Plan for Future Success

  • Reliability strategies for new assets must begin during the engineering phases of a project.
  • Failure to properly care for new assets in its first few years of life increase the total cost of ownership exponentially.
  • Spare parts and resources required for asset care directly affect the project returns and cost of ownership.
  • Operations and maintenance must be trained on the new assets prior to commissioning and startup.
  • CMMS population (bill of materials, spare parts/descriptions/count, etc.) is critical for long-term success.

Improved Asset Performance Through Digital Twins

Running Your Facilities at Peak Performance

By understanding the key aspects of reliability programs such as Asset Reliability Strategies, Availability KPIs, and Asset Predictability, Hargrove works to drive at the root of our clients’ issues to make an immediate impact on their performance. We have a full-service team including both fixed and rotating equipment, electrical power distribution, and instrumentation. Diving into the details of the performance issues our clients face allows our team to act not only as a consultant but as a full-service project execution firm that can bring recommendations to reality.

Reducing unplanned downtime for our clients leads to their improved safety, increased production, and reduced operating costs thereby improving profit margins across the board. Our services help our clients to improve their position in their respective markets resulting in mutual success. In addition, through our AspenTech partnership, Hargrove can help your site install software that creates a Digital Profile of the historical, current and future behavior of the physical plant asset—called a Digital Twin.

Mechanical Inspections

Fixed Asset Comprehensive Care Plan

Fixed assets have to be closely monitored for thickness, damage mechanisms, and overall integrity. However, often the results from the field require more advanced analysis such as fitness for service or vessel rerates.

By leveraging the partnership from two industry-leaders, our clients are the beneficiary when it comes to maximizing the life of their valuable production assets. The knowledge and expertise that a Hargrove + Premium partnership brings to the table provides the client with a one-stop shop for their inspection and mechanical analysis needs.
